Dead mouse in car airconditioner. Car is kept in the garage (one car building). There is AC power in the building. We have no children or pets. The garage is not attached to the house.
Please recommend a product to trap existing population and an ultrasound device to keep new imice away.
As explained in our MOUSE CONTROL ARTICLE, the first step to eliminate a mouse infestation is to identify the food supply. Since mice have limited range, if they are living in the home, chances are high the food supply is in the home as well. Bird seed, grass seed and pet food are amongst the most common attractants. If you have an idea of where they may be feeding, place some TIN CATS or MOUSE MASTERS out in these areas. This should enable you to catch all that are feeding and nesting in or around the garage. Expect the trapping process to take 1-2 weeks. Once you get to where you don’t have any new activity for 2 weeks, you can begin to clean up the problem.
To eliminate any odors (including the dead mouse odor), apply some NNZ to the garage area as well as the car itself. This non toxic odor neutralizer can be placed close to the air intake vents for the car to get it inside the ventilation system to help sterilize the odor (which can be done with the car turned on). This may take 1-2 treatments depending on how well you are able to deliver the NNZ to the actual spot the dead mouse is resting.
Lastly, install the TRANSONIC USD DEVICE in the garage and use a timer to keep it active most of the time. Generally the most important time will be at night but having it go off during the day periodically is suggested. Ideally, having it go off all the time is great but if this isn’t possible, then try to have it active as much as possible to insure they rodents don’t schedule their existence around the “downtime” of the Transonic.
